Anyone download the new update yet? I'm downloading the ESPN portion of it. I'm hoping this is pretty cool. Allow you to maybe watch more sports than you normally could. However, if it's something that's just on the channels themselves then that will be pretty boring. It's actually done downloading and I don't feel like going back. So far, the ESPN part looks pretty cool. They have a lot of on demand events: soccer (mls, euro leagues), rugby, khl, euro basketball, NCAAF, NCAA volleyball, Judo (which I'm watching now). That's just some of them. This could be kind of cool.

Netflix now has a search feature. That was the biggest thing the app was lacking. I hear zune now allows you to stream music from their marketplace with that zune pass thing they have.

The layout is a bit different. There are fewer windows on the screen and they kind of pop up when you go them. Right now, it kind of hurts my eyes but I assume thatll go away over time. Another cosmetic change is the quick menu which is a white color now. I'm not a fan of the font they have switched to but it's not that big of a deal. Update seems nice enough

I use ESPN 3 all the time on my computer so this is just awesome. Finally I can watch a meaningless friendly between Uzbekistan and the Faroe Islands on my television.

Meaningless?  Go Faroes!

I guess this is as good a place to put this, but I think I'm going back to 360.

Can you help me live a little more?  I expect good news.

You bastard. You're one of the reasons I was moving towards the PS3 for my multiplayer shooters

So I think we've reached the point where MLB teams have hired every last one of the big/innovative brains that the old BP produced, and now we're left with a bunch of navel-gazing 25 year old chuckleheads.

The main reason is that my little brother plays on 360.  Most of my CoD chums play on 360.  I like the PS3, FWIW.

I like the PS3, too.  I just think the online system, controller, and games are all infinitely better on the 360.

Games?  How so?  Serious question...

I've played both and the only real difference I can see is that the textures are a bit generic on PS3 games.  And that's in multiplayer.  I've noticed this in MW2, but then again that's about all I play.  The PS3 exclusive games, like The Show and Uncharted, are amazing.
